That thing didn't wake me up gently... I screamed, it was quite a jolt, and you just never know when the big one is going to happen.

By the way, Grace, the city shown with a writer's comments never is the correct one.

My daughter lives in Del Mar and felt it, so much for distance from the epicenter that is was felt.

That one had a good jolt to it. Second one this month I felt. Hope it isnt a precursor. a few bottles fell off my bookcase but nothing damaged or broken thank God.

5.0? What? it felt like a 11.3.(exaggerated of course) but definitely thought it was a lot higher than what it was recorded

Guess what Rick, now you have moved to Florida!
Probably to get away from the scary quakes.

It started out as a light roll...with just enough time to think it's an earthquake, then a few good jolts to remind you that we live in earthquake country! A good reminder that we have to be prepared and give thanks for our loved ones.

I thought the same thing, Junior. I felt sure it was at least a 7.0. It felt more like an explosion than a quake.

Lots of shake at the Hummus House Restaurant in Hawthorne. Strong Building. No broken china. Just little bit scary. Customers calmed down and continued meals. The phone stopped working for 10 minutes and then came back on line.
